Division of Communication

Learn the art and science of communication

Become an Effective Communicator, Leader and Influencer

We live in a noisy, distracted world — one that’s overstimulated by screens and oversaturated with competing messages.

What does it take to break through the clutter? Clear, compelling communication.

In Biola’s Division of Communication, we prepare students to meet today’s challenges and develop employer-impressing skills that are in demand across career fields — from marketing to media, from medicine to ministry, and everything in between. You’ll learn how to cut through the noise, to get ideas to stick, to spread truth, shape opinions, reach customers and build meaningful connections.

As one of the nation’s top Christian communication programs, Biola offers you an education that’s academically rigorous, immensely practical, and housed within a one-of-a-kind community.
